The City of Barrie's Community Garden Program is governed by the Community Garden Policy. There are currently four locations: Golden Meadow Park, Sunnidale Park, Shear Park and Eastview Community Park.
Community Gardens closed due to COVID-19All outdoor recreational amenities are closed until further notice. This includes playgrounds, sports fields, basketball and tennis courts, dog off-leash parks, beaches, skateboard parks, picnic areas, outdoor community gardens, park shelters, outdoor exercise equipment, condo parks and gardens, and other outdoor recreational amenities. Residents can continue to register for community gardens through Service Barrie until further notice. Should this closure continue past June 12, 2020, residents may transfer their existing registration payment at that time to the 2021 season or request a refund.
Prior to renting a plot, gardeners are to read the policy and sign a Community Garden Plot Rental Contract. The City of Barrie administers the registration of the garden plots and any alterations to the garden plan. The gardeners elect a garden coordinator to operate the day to day functions of the garden and liaise with the City. Gardeners are welcome to rent more than one plot after May 1st, subject to availability.
